Tomato & Basil Spaghetti

DSC_7317

As you all know, I love spaghetti (Oh, I love spaghetti!!). Type in “spaghetti” in the search bar, and it’ll lead you to more than five entries. I eat spaghetti almost every week. If I’m not cooking it at home, I’m eating it in a fastfood restaurant (e.g. Jollibee). I’m all for easy to prepare spaghetti because I sure do not want to wait a long time before I can eat them. The easiest spaghetti dish I’ve created so far is this no-oil tomato and basil spaghetti. Continue reading “Tomato & Basil Spaghetti”

Chickpeas Salad Sandwich

I was going to call this chickpea “tuna” salad sandwich. The chickpea, according to many sources I read in the Internet, is supposed to taste like “tuna,” and is a good substitute of tuna for those trying the vegetarian or vegan diet. I’d say, the chickpeas did not taste anything like tuna. It tasted like, well, chickpeas! So, I’m not going to fool anyone by mislabeling a chickpeas salad as a “faux tuna” salad or “vegan tuna” salad. Despite it not tasting like tuna at all, I found the chickpeas salad really, really, really delicious, and creamy. I could not point to a similar taste but the chickpeas provided a good base for the condiments I used. Continue reading “Chickpeas Salad Sandwich”

Banana-Coconut Flour Pancakes

My husband and I have been frequenting the Farmers’ Market at SRP, and last Saturday, we bought half a kilo of bananas. Because we had a rather heavy dinner last night (thank you family!), I decided to make a healthier breakfast to try to make up for the scrumptious dinner. These banana pancakes are an update to these Flourless, 3-Ingredient Pancakes as today’s pancakes involved more than three ingredients and incorporated a new twist.

Today’s gonna be hang-over day for some people, so I’m sharing an easy to make, delicious and not very expensive pasta dish that you bring for lunch or whip up tonight after tackling your work backlog. I love this dish because it involves a good bottle of Spanish sardines, which I consider a luxury food.  Continue reading “FOOD | Spanish Sardines Spaghetti”

Cauliflower Rice

Filipino that I am, I am a big rice eater. Even when I’m eating noodles, there should be rice on the side. At worst, even when I’m eating spaghetti, I sneak in a few spoons of rice. Rice is not bad, not bad at all, but I’ve been trying to experiment with cooking rice and incorporating vegetables and proteins into it so that I can consume less of the rice (carbohydrates!) and more of the nutrients from the vegetables and meat.  Continue reading “Cauliflower Rice”
